I wanted to introduce the Care remixes with James Ferraro’s take on “Anxious.” When I started planning my forthcoming installation “WE ARE ALL VERY ANXIOUS” in Los Angeles, it was really important to me to talk with James about the song, not only because his albums Far Side Virtual and Human Story Three actually inspired the track (as did Todd Haynes’ film Safe, and Alexandra Kleeman’s novel You Too Can Have A Body Like Mine), but I knew he would understand the urgency and aesthetic berserkness that limits the pure bubbly pop of the song. I think James’ remix is really brilliant.
Each of the other remixes, which you’ll be able to hear in due time, give a clue as to where my music is headed right now, as I work on my fifth record. It will be a much more metaphysical record, more ontological than ontic, and it’s oriented towards experimental electronic and dance music and much more connected to the ambient core of the How To Dress Well project.
I’m really happy to share this remix friend pack with you all and really looking forward to showing you some new music soon!
